2014 ACT Championship

The ACT Chess Championship starts next Friday. The details for this tournament are below. At this stage there are around 20 entries, with the top seeds being IM Andrew Brown and FM Junta Ikeda. Below that there are some promising juniors as well as a group of players in the 1800-2000 rating group. Hopefully ACT players in the 2000+ rating band looking for some extra competition before the Doeberl will be inclined to give it a go. Full details are available at the ACT Chess Association website.
